For most of his life, Abdu was a proud Muslim who studied the Qur'an and Islam. After a years-long investigation into the historical and philosophical underpinnings of the major world religions and views, Abdu discovered that only the evidence for the historic Christian faith could withstand the toughest challenges. The results of Abdu’s intense search, coupled with the Lord’s drawing of his heart, led him to put his faith in Jesus as the one and only Savior. Since that time, Abdu has dedicated his ministry to thoughtfully engaging non-Christians with the Gospel and equipping Christians to do the same.
